Jean Price-Mars est né à la Grande-Rivière du Nord (Haïti) le 15 octobre 1876 et est mort à Pétionville (Haïti) le 1er mars 1969. À la fois médecin, ethnographe, diplomate, homme d'état, pédagogue et écrivain, il est considéré comme le principal maître à penser haïtien du XXe siècle.
Jean Price-Mars est l’auteur de plus d’une centaine d’articles, de discours et de conférences dans les domaines de l’anthropologie, l’histoire, la pédagogie, la politique et la littérature.


 Jean Price-Mars (1876 – 1969), Haitian physician, ethnographer, diplomat, educator, historian, politician, was a towering intellectual in Haitian history and cultural studies, and a Pan Africanist who called to reevaluate the contributions of Africa in universal civilizations and to revalorize African retentions and cultural practices in the Black diaspora, especially on Haitian soil. Through his writings, Price-Mars, whom Leopold Sedar Senghor called “the Father of Negritude,” sought to establish connecting links between Africa and the Black Diaspora, and the shared history and struggle between people of African descent in the Diaspora.

For many scholars, Price-Mars is the father of Haitian ethnology and Dean of Haitian Studies in the twentieth-century, and arguably, the most influential Haitian thinker that has graced the “Black Republic” since the death of Joseph Auguste Anténor Firmin in 1911. In Haitian thought, Price-Mars has exercised an enduring intellectual and ideological influence on the young Haitian intellectuals and writers of the generation of the American Occupation in Haiti (1915-1934) and the post-Occupation culture from the 1930s to 1970s. He is especially known for launching a cultural nationalism and an anti-imperial movement against the brutal American military forces in Haiti.

Hope Outreach Productions is an interdisciplinary, transnational, and a multilingual publishing company that publishes both academic and non academic works, fiction and non-fiction books. We are committed to enhancing the life of the mind and promoting constructive learning and understanding  through the production of good books, and through dynamic interaction  between the author, the text, and the reader. We emphasize quality production, and uphold the dignity of our authors and readers. We believe that producing quality and enduring texts involve collaborative partnership with our authors.

Subjects of particular interest include history, philosophy, religion, literature, theology, anthropology, sociology, psychology, biography, economics, gender, minority and ethnic studies, etc. HOP is currently soliciting original manuscripts for publication in the fields of  Pan Africanism, Black Diaspora Studies, Caribbean Studies, and Africana Studies. However,  book ideas from  other disciplines that could potentially contribute to human flourishing, cosmopolitanism,   transcultural dialogue,  and cross-ethnic and interracial  understanding   are strongly encouraged. We welcome manuscripts in English, French, Spanish, Creole, etc.

Our Vision and Philosophy

Hope Outreach Productions exists to respond to the dire needs to publish the works of writers, scholars, and thinkers from the Majority World, the so-called “Third World,” and to give them an intellectual venue to articulate their ideas about their world, their vision about the global world, and their assessment of the human condition through the written Word.
HOP prioritizes scholarly and non-scholarly writings that are transnational, multicultural, multilingual, and emancipative in content—from the pen of those individuals who promote and defend human dignity, and the human rights of those who live in the margins of society.
HOP affirms the value of producing quality books that could potentially be used instrumentally to foster cross-cultural collaboration and international alliance between people of different worlds, and beyond the geographical border of nationalism and the politics of culture, ethnicity, gender, and race.
The motto of Hope Outreach Productions is  articulated in this sentence: “HOP is committed to enhancing the life of the mind and the human condition through the production of good books.”
If you share our philosophy and vision of publishing, we invite you to join the journey with us by submitting your book proposal to our editor.
